Lightweight geometric forms filling an internal space generally with no applied environmental loads - from wind, rain or snow - but usually a small amount of prestress.
Very lightweight highly curved forms may be used to create exciting geometric forms to fill a void.
There will be no external environmental loads from wind, rain or snow but a small degree of prestress and accurate patterning are required.
